Romanian Savings Bank, Bucharest: 10 reviews and 24 photos
The Monastery of Sfantul Ioan cel Mare was built in 1577 and in 1734 there was also added an inn around it. Affected by the 1802 earthquake, it was restored in 1828 and in 1850 the Savings' House was settled in the inn. The inn was demolished in 1863, and the church was demolished in 1895, as it was ruined. The actual Palace of the Savings Bank was built on the site in 1896-1900, following the plans designed by Architect Paul Gottereau. The palace was built in Eclectic style and it was topped with a glass and steel cupola, meant to provide the main hall inside with natural light. The monumental entrance is endowed with a huge semicircle fronton that stands on two pairs of Composite style columns.
